    is relatively similar to quasi-democratic monarchies we've seen in western history where most power was held by the monarch. Only, in this case, the monarchy is an outright member of the clergy as opposed to being the clergy's titular head.

    Sure there is SOME democracy, but of a highly qualified sort. The ayatollahs still call the shots. All REAL power - meaning the power to jail, kill, and go to war - is held by them .  How do we deal with these thugs when they are the real one's in control?  

    Sponge Bob, Mandrake, Cartoons. That's how your hard-core islamahomocommienazis work.
